Guys, I’ve got a puzzle for you… First, I’ve been lurking here for a long time (many years!) and so I owe a huge thanks to this community for getting through many a tricky situation. Thanks everyone. This one, though, has got me completely stumped. Let me give you a brief (as possible) history: Bought Japanese N3DS LL 10.3.0-20J in Tokyo Followed Salamencizer’s excellent NOOB friendly guide to downgrading to 9.2: https://gbatemp.net/threads/noob-friendly-guide-to-downgrading-your-3ds-from-fw-10-7.418125/ I used oot3dhax with a physical cart and save dongle I had exactly the same experience as reported in that guide by LoveHina: “I successfully downgraded from a JPN N3DS 10.4 to 9.1 with 9.2 CIAs. I know it's very strange. When I follow you guide, I can't get pass STEP 4 for checking JPN N3DS 9.2 CIA packs. It fails on 0004001000020900.cia. However, I downloaded and checked several times and MD5s. So I decided to downgrade. Anyway, I succeeded. Thanks Salamencizer for your tutorial!” I then followed the latest Gateway manual and got as far as launching OoT and loading the Gateway save. On hitting A, the game freezes and nothing happens. Tried many attempts at this. GW manual: http://maxconsole.com/maxconsole_files/gateway/GW-v3-7-1.pdf# Over on the Max Console forums, user Zelda gave me some very dedicated and equally noob-friendly help and we did the following: Ran the downgrade checker and found a long list of different titles (28 + 1 extra) Discovered downgrade checker is specifically checking against the US region 9.2, and so not suitable for JP firmware Got stuck That forum thread is here: http://www.maxconsole.com/maxcon_fo...e-N3DS-9-1-0-20J-OoT-Cannot-open-Gateway-menu So here’s my plan: Find a way to check the title versions for Japanese N3DS and see if they’re correct on my console Replace any that are the wrong version with the titles from the JP O3DS pack (using FBI) Try Gateway again and see if that fixed it Quiz questions for you: Does anyone know a way (manual or automated) to check title version for a JP N3DS? Has anyone downgraded a JP N3DS and successful used Gateway? Does anyone have any other bright ideas? Cheers guys. Any replies very gratefully received.
